F1, F3, F4, F7 and H7 are the different processors in racing drone flight controllers. This article explains the differences between these MCU, the advantages and disadvantages and help you decide which FC to get.
Are you having trouble with motor outputs on a flight controller? One of the motors just doesn’t spin when you arm the quad? In this post I will share some experience how to troubleshoot and fix “dead” motor outputs on an FC.
The Frsky R9MM FC is basically the Airbot OmniNXT F7 with a built-in R9MM receiver. I am going to test it and find out what the advantages are. I will also show you how to update receiver firmware.
Although I do think the naming/marketing is a bit misleading, the Binary F10, nevertheless, is an interesting new flight controller. It is faster than any other existing FC on the market because it can run 32K PID loop at the lowest CPU utilization.
The brand new Foxeer F722 Dual flight controller has just landed and I can’t wait to find out what new features it brings to the table. In this review we will take a close look at the spec and build quality, and how it performs in a mini quad.
Here are some of the best FC (flight controllers) for racing mini quads using Betaflight, KISS and Raceflight firmware, based on their features, spec and user feedback.
It’s a good idea to add extra capacitor to your mini quad’s power. But it’s not always possible with the limited space in some tight frames. I found a clean solution and thought some of you might find useful – Introducing the Lantian XT60 pigtail with a 1000uF capacitor that is already soldered to it.
CL Racing F7 FC is finally here! I have been a great fan of the F4 so I cannot wait to check out their latest offering. The F7 maintains the same killer layout, and introduces a few pioneering features which we will go over in the review.
The Hive_16 from Newbeedrone is a 16x16mm all-in-one stack including FC, RX, VTX and ESC. It’s probably the smallest complete package you can get for an FPV drone right now!
I used to love AIO (all in one) flight controllers, but they can be awkward to use with 4in1 ESC. With 4in1 ESC getting more reliable and easier to work with, I have been looking for a non-AIO FC that works well. This time we are looking at the Spedix F4 FC!
The Holybro Kakute F4 and F7 flight controllers now support Ardupilot firmware for more advanced and reliable GPS capability. Features include “Return to Home”, “GPS Way-Point” and “Position hold” etc. In this tutorial I will show you how to flash Ardupilot firmware on the Kakute F4 and F7 FC.
Spoiler: the Kakute F7 AIO flight controller is pretty sweet! With Betaflight performance of F7 FC’s continues to improve, it’s safe to say that F4 is no longer the only option when it comes to choosing your next FC!
